Charles Barkley on LeBron James’ ‘Punk Moves’

by August 13, 2010

Sir Charles has been going in on LeBron all summer long. He’s now asking for the top spot on James’ so-called enemies list: “Charles Barkley weighed in Wednesday on a recent Twitter statement by LeBron James. Barkley, a TNT analyst and former NBA  All-Star, said he hopes James remembers Barkley’s critical comments and called a couple of James’ more significant actions this summer ‘punk’ moves. ‘I heard about LeBron’s little tweet today that he’s remembering everybody who said anything bad about him,’ Barkley said Thursday on ESPN Radio 103.3 FM in Dallas/Fort Worth. ‘And he said ‘everybody.’ Well, I want him to make sure that he puts my name on that (list). I thought that his little one-hour special was a punk move. I thought them dancing around on the stage was a punk move, and I thought he should’ve stayed in Cleveland. Him joining Dwyane Wade’s team was very disappointing to me … That one-hour special, them jumping around on stage like punks, that wasn’t cool to me. From a basketball standpoint, I wish he had stayed in Cleveland, and if he takes that as criticism, so be it. He knows where I’ll be, I don’t run. I’m on TV every week, I’m easy to find.'”
